Ethiopic Sanni 7, Tammuz 1, Thursday June 14, 2018
Several times in the wildernesses before Moses could return and or deliver the repentance methods, the children of Israel, the congregation had already broken their word. Shemot/ Exodus 32:7
And YHWH ALMIGHTY said to Moshe, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou brought out of the land of Mitzraim have corrupted themselves:
Shemot/Exodus 32:8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt”.
YHWH was willing to start again with Moshe (32:10).
If YHWH had done so, would Moshe have gotten into The Promise Land.
Moshe was not selfish, egoistic, arrogant, etc.
He took his leadership role very serious. Even to his own detriment.
By the end of the first five books of the Bible, the assembly, or church as referred to in Acts 7:38, was/ is coming into the land promised by YHWH to Abraham.
Know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.
Life, love, living and loving inclusive of political, social, econmic, health and wellness, safety and security, good fruit, moral and ethical instructions. and activity-Civil, sanitary and spiritual regulations include forgiveness’ of sin. The Promise Land.
YHWH’S REGULATIONS were/are to constantly remind YHWH’S people YHWH is eminently kadosh.
In ancient days, YHWH could be approached only by the priests, and then only in strict obedience to YHWH’S detailed instructions for purification.
YHWH required the sacrifice of innocent animals for the covering of man’s sin.
Sacrifices are symbolic of the ultimate sacrifice which would take away the sin of the whole world. John 1:29
After Moshes’ leadership came Joshua, Judges and the initial two kings chosen by YHWH.
In the books from Judges to Malachi is how YHWH’s instructions were understood or mis-understood; applied or mis-applied;
There were/are good or bad leadership either through kings or prophets of which there were true and false ones.
Many, if not all the people, followed the leaders whether good or bad ones.
Elijah, thought he was the only one keeping YHWH’s ways until YHWH told him He had reserved 7,000 who had not succumbed to Ahab’s and Jezebel’s false religion/religiosity in the name of ‘Yahweh, YHWH, HE WHO BE WHO HE BE”.
YHWH’S promise to Abraham in Bereshit/Genesis 12:3 “and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed’, had not yet been fulfilled.
It could be said Messianic Ethiopian Hebrew Israelite Rastafari were/are blessed by not being destroyed for sinful ways.
The word mentions several times this assembly would be a “light” to the Gentiles, aka other nations.
Messiah did/would/will come and bring the obedient of Israel and Gentiles back to YHWH. Isaiah 49:6 … It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
Matthew 12:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
Matthew 12:18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my ruach/spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
Isa 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your Power, YHWH, will come with vengeance, even YHWH with a recompence; he will come and save you. HalleluYah! HalleluJah!
And when the Sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue:
Yahoshua’s custom was to be in the synagogue on Shabbat not because he was Judah, Hebrew aka a Jew but because the synagogue, church, gathering was/is YHWH’s church.
Granted in the church was the sick and possessed;
Yahoshua said a righteous man has no need of a physician.
He did not come for the saved; but the lost.
One difference between ancient church and churches of today calling oneselves YHWH’S, assembly, gatherings, MEHIR’s aka “G Ds church’, is that one kept YHWH’s seventh day Shabbat, and kadosh days.
Although ones “possessed” were/are in attendance, no one was on the altar preaching against keeping YHWH’s laws.
Yahoshua’s family are those who hear the word of YHWH and DO it Luke 8:21.
Luke 9:56 The Son of man , He came to save not destroy people’s lives as they are already on their way to destruction in their sins.
YHWH’S people perish for lack of knowledge of YHWH’’s kingdom of heaven.
Warned in Luke 11:35, may INI, we YHWH’S people not be those who think darkness inside of them is light.
They think that they have the correct teaching, theology, philodophy, teaching, doctrine, light, but it is in fact deceit, error; darkness.
Luke 12:51 He has come to divide the law keeper from the law breakers.
Many claim we are not to judge, yet Luke 12: 57 says we are to judge what is right.
John 7:24, Yahoshua answered the people who accused him, judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
REPENT! Luke 13:3 & 5 people perish for not repenting.
Luke 13:28 Abraham, Yscok/Isaac, Yaacob/Jacob and the prophets got into the kingdom of heaven.
That begs the question, ‘What did they do, not do, say, not say, see, not see, have, not have in common?’
They heard YHWH’S VOICE, AND kept YHWH’S WORD. INI, we MUST HEAR AND KEEP YHWH’S WORD, hear and Keep YHWH’s commandments, laws and statutes.
Zacchaeus in Luke 19:9 offered to make amends for any wrong he did and received salvation that day.
Through faith and acceptance of Yahoshua and Yahoshuas’ teachings he received salvation that day.
Zacchaeus, a publican, became a child of Abraham.
